Casillas (neck) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
Casillas started at weak-side linebacker this season, accruing 35 tackles (25 solo). This season has been up and down for the Giants, but with no playoff hopes left, there's no reason to put Casillas back on the field and risk the veteran's health. This was the last season of Casillas' contract, so he may have played his last game for New York.
Casillas (neck) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Raiders, Ralph Vacchiano of SportsNet New York reports.
Casillas was able to play through this injury in his last three games, so he may have suffered a setback at some point. The veteran linebacker has 35 tackles (25 solo) through eight games. Akeem Ayers and Kelvin Sheppard will take over for the time being.
Casillas (neck) is listed as active for Thursday's game against the Redskins.
Casillas was a late addition to the injury report Wednesday, but he was still able to practice fully. Thus, it is not surprising that he will be active for Thursday's game. With the Giants dealing with several injuries at linebacker, the veteran could be in line for a heavy workload.
Casillas (neck) is listed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Redskins.
Casillas didn't crop up on the injury report until Wednesday and was listed as a full participant in the Giants' estimate of what his level of involvement would have been had the team held practice, so it seems likely he'll suit up Thursday. He should be in store for a near-every down role in the Week 12 matchup, but with no more than six tackles in any game this season, Casillas doesn't carry much IDP appeal.
Casillas (neck) is active for Sunday's game against the 49ers.
The Giants had already ruled out three linebackers (Keenan Robinson, B.J. Goodson and Devon Kennard) due to injury earlier this week, so Casillas' return from a three-game absence comes at a fortunate time. Despite seeing hefty snap counts in his first five appearances of the season, Casillas only managed 19 tackles and no turnovers, limiting his IDP utility as a result.
